Good find! Alpha Video doesn't have it.

Yes, nobody seems to publish it, which surprised me at first. On the other hand, there are quite a few reasons why it's been flying under the radar: the cast, although capable, doesn't radiate star power; it was the only film made by Mark Stevens Productions and it wasn't even registered with the copyright office; and it's got a boring title (which sounds the most exciting: The chase, A life at stake, I love trouble, or Timetable?). As a matter of fact, I only discovered the film's existence thanks to a review on a blog devoted to obscure crime films, which was also posted on Noir of the Week. The review made it seem interesting, and for once there was no copyright renewal in sight while a print was available.

Anyway, it's a nifty little film in spite of its obscurity, even if it is of a lower caliber than heist classic Kansas City Confidential.
